Nobel Prize: Top Ten Winners in History


  1. Marie Curie was the first woman to win the Nobel Prize in 1903, for her research in radiation. It is also the first to win the award twice, for discovering radium and polonium.
  2. Martin Luther King Jr. was 35 years old at the time to win a Nobel Peace Prize (1964). The Nobel Foundation recognized his great influence on the black liberation movement in the United States.
  3. Albert Einstein is considered one of the brightest minds in the world, and he won the Nobel Prize in 1921 not for his famous theory of relativity, but for his contribution to discovering the law of the photoelectric phenomenon.
  4. Many people may not know Francis Crick, James Watson, and Morris Wilkins, who won the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 1962. But everyone knows the spiral shape of DNA, which these scientists discovered.
  5. The French philosopher and writer Jean-Paul Sartre was considered the first person to refuse to receive the Nobel Prize, and that was in 1964. But his name is still listed as a winner of this prize in the field of literature.
  6. Sir Alexander Fleming shared with Ernst Chen and Sir Howard Florey the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 1945 for their discovery (by chance!) Of penicillin and its medicinal benefits in treating infectious diseases.
  7. Hermann Muller won the same Sir Fleming prize, but a year later, in 1946, for his discovery of the effect of X-rays on modulating cells, which made him politically active against the development of nuclear weapons.
  8. Russian novelist Alexander Solzhenitsyn won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1970, for his novel that exposed the practices of the Soviet Union at the time in forced labor camps, in which he spent time.
  9. Although she is not a single person, the International Committee of the Red Cross has won three Nobel Prizes, and by that, it is the most recipient of this award, all in the field of peace.
  10. The most recent influential figure to win a Nobel Prize was Sir Clive Grainger of Wales in 2003, for his research into methods of analyzing economic statistics, which revolutionized the world of financial data.
